Bag door latch handle in, along with the rubber locating bushes

Bag holder slid up and the bag door handle located into it so it's pushed down when the handle is lifted

Time for some new bags now

And a new pre motor filter

The non cracked wand and crevice tool get fitted

Back to the wheels, and there is something missing here

The foot pedal

I found the spring for the bag door safety latch that I mislaid when stripping it down (Charlie found it on the floor, whoops...) so fitted that

Fitted the filter safety latch spring (I took this off so I could close the bag door for storage without needing the very full bag it came with fitted...)

Fitted a new upholstry tool, and she is done!

Best check it works...

Super strip down topic!  :bow:

Was that post motor cover grille warped from overheating in the past?

I thought so, but the motor didnt look like it had been hot, no damage on it, just a warped housing. All I can think of is the vac got put in a hot place, but I would have expected more warping to the hood. Is most strange!
